A three-month exhibition titled Con duong to lua tren bien Dong, or Silk Road on East Sea, will be held at the Vietnam National Museum of History in Hanoi.

Dr. Nguyen Van Doan, head of the museum’s exhibition department, said the exhibition would showcase Vietnam’s role in and dominion over the East Sea as part of the route.

The Silk Road was a network of interlinking trade routes on land, but also by sea, on the Afro-Eurasian landmass connecting most of Asia with Europe between the 2nd century BCE and 15th century CE.
